GPs shouldn't ignore the threat of coronavirus - but we're equipped to deal with it

Comment

Cope? Hmmmmm We’ll be emailed dictats ordering us to run around to all and sundry prescribing massive quantities of expensive useless antiviral placebos (to fool the public something is being done), patients will be told to “call the doctor out” to avoid attending surgery, GPs will inevitably contract the virus themselves, and of course all the work currently drowning the few remaining GPs won’t just magically disappear. Having starved Primary Care down to skeletal proportions, don’t be surprised if it succumbs to this virus.
